On September 11, the Education and Sports Bureau of Yancheng County, Henan Province, issued a statement about “teachers’ holiday gifts,” instructing a teacher to return the same amount of flowers to the parents of a student.
Recently, a teacher at a primary school in Yancheng County, Henan Province, “posted” gifts on social media to attract attention. The teacher’s “sunbathing” gift is a bouquet, a box of mooncakes, a box of drinks, and the text “The advantage of being a teacher is that I am very popular everywhere, thank you for the Teacher’s Day gift from Mother Wang.”
